1000 miles Mission Complete – Justin Rowe

Justin Rowe finished the run on Saturday 14th September at the USMC Memorial, Arlington Virginia.
It was humbling experience finishing at such an iconic memorial with my family, USMC Guard of Honor from Marine Corps Base Quantico (MCBQ), Arlington Police, Fire, USMC Commander MCBQ, and Royal Marine Commando senior officers to meet me at the finish.
The memory will stay with me forever, especially running the last 10 miles with a good friend and CEO of Allied Forces Foundation, Stuart Taylor.
Justin completed the run in 44 days running a distance of 990.44 miles pulling a trailer (Burley Nomad) weighing 35 kgs / 77Ibs, averaging 22.5 miles a day. Every day I was getting mentally and physically stronger, he could have run another 1.000 miles but I had to return home back with my family.
He has raised $8.000 for the foundation so far, this will help the volunteers carry out their important work of supporting injured allied veterans side by side to take part in physical challenges such as the USMC Marathon, the Cateran Yomp in the highlands of Scotland and supporting veterans with PTS.
Finally, Justin would like to thank the sponsors Providence UK and Burley USA, he wishes you all the health, happiness and success for the future hopefully our paths will cross again in the not too distant future.
